THE MYSTERY AGENCY
The Mystery Agency is a collection of puzzle games, masterminded by Henry Lewis (co-creator of The Play That Goes Wrong). The design brief for this project was the most complicated I've ever received - each mystery has ten or so pieces of pretty intricate graphic design work, which not only had to create the visual world of the story, but also had to contain various hidden codes, patterns and puzzles which allow the player to unlock padlocks, access password-protected files and all that sort of thing. It was an absolute dream job and I had a whale of a time.
Things got pretty quiet when all the theatres were shut during the Covid-19 crisis, so I set myself a personal project, creating book cover designs for some of my favourite books.
I don't do commissioned portraits any more, but I had a happy few years in my late teens and early twenties fiddling around with oil paints!
